thanks, I have just tried that and found that if I set the Default font to DejaVu Sans, with Hinting to full and Antialiasing to none that it is quite OK.
Only problem now is that Firefox and Thunderbird ignore these font settings :-(

Wonder why that is the case on Linux, but they honor the font settings under windows?

Can some one provide info on how to disable Anitaliasing fonts on Mint ( or any other Gnome UI )
Forget the invitable comments that liased font look better and provide a better user experience. For mae and many others, they just look Fuzzy and give me a headace after about 30 minutes of use

I support windows 7 for work and to turn off all antialiasing, it is one check box. If I do not do this at the first boot on Win7 / 2008 install, byt the time the install has completed I have a headache for the rest of the day.

Same applies to recent Mint / Ubuntu

This sort of Sh*%t has been going on far too long and is not only limited to software! Music, Video, Ipads and even to clothes and Shoes. Motorcycle parts anyone? How come I can buy a pair of Nike runners online in the US, and have them shipped here for 1/2 the price I can buy in the store here? they are made in Asia anyway, shipping costs should be the same Same applies to just about everything imported, Can buy online in the US cheaper than here.
